10 best deadline day signings of the 2021 winter transfer window

Joshua Zirkzee-Bayern Munich-Parma

The winter transfer window has come to an end and here are the ten best signings happened on the deadline day.

Joshua Zirkzee

Bayern Munich youngster Johsua Zirkzee has completed his loan move to Serie A club, Parma for the remainder of the season. The Dutch striker has sought the transfer to acquire more playing time while the Italian club has the obligation to buy him permanently.

Joshua King

Everton have snapped up Bournemouth striker Joshua King on the deadline day. The 29-year-old, who has been a mainstay for the Cherries, was linked with top Premier League clubs including Manchester United last summer but a move never materialised. Now with his contract set to expire at the end of the season, King has sealed a move to Goodison Park.

Cenk Tosun

Everton ace Cenk Tosun, who has been deprived of game time this season, completed his return to Besiktas on loan for the remainder of the season.

Takumi Minamino

Following his much-anticipated move from Salzburg last year, Takumi Minamino has struggled for game time at Liverpool and it is also understandable given their star-studded attack. Now, Minamino has been loaned to fellow Premier League outfit Southampton for the remainder of the season.

Jean Clair Todibo

Todibo has sealed his loan move from Barcelona to Ligue 1 club OGC Nice for the remainder of the season. Despite being deemed as a talented prospect, Todibo’s time at the Camp Nou didn’t go in the desired way as he would have planned. The French centre-back joined Benfica on loan last summer.

Shkodran Mustafi

Mustafi’s time at Emirates has come to an end after Arsenal opted to terminate his contract. The German defender sealed a move to his homeland, joining Schlake for the remainder of the season. Mustafi failed to attain a starter berth under Mikel Arteta after making only three Premier League appearances this season.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Following Mustafi, The Gunners has also allowed Ainsley Maitland-Niles to join West Brom on loan for the remainder of the season. The English ace hasn’t been a consistent performer for Arteta this season and this loan deal could help him get enough game time and to win a place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for Euro 2021.

Ben Davies 

Liverpool beat Celtic to capture defender Ben Davies from Preston. The 25-year-old’s contract at Preston was due to expire at the end of this season before the Reds acted quickly to sign him ahead of Scottish giants Celtic.

Ozan Kabak

Liverpool were one of the busiest clubs on the deadline day not only by letting go of the unfavoured stars but also adding reinforcements to their defence. Schalke’s Ozan Kabak made a loan move to Anfield on the deadline day and the Reds have the option to sign him permanently for 18m pounds.

Moises Caicedo

Brighton completed the transfer of highly-talented Ecuadorian teenager Moises Caicedo on the deadline of the transfer window from Independiente del Valle.
